MD Value Care offers tailored care coordination programs to assist Medicare patients with chronic condition management. Some of the most common chronic conditions among Medicare patients include diabetes, high blood pressure, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and asthma.
Our Care Coordination Programs help patients who have one or more chronic conditions gain the knowledge, skills, tools, and confidence to become an active participant in their care and achieve their health goals.
Designed to help patients manage their care between office visits, this program provides personalized coaching, education, and evidence-based interventions to enhance outcomes for Medicare patients. Patients will meet with registered nurses, social workers, and registered dietitians along their journey to improved health. Focus areas can include nutrition, activity, lifestyle and other social behaviors, condition knowledge, self-management, and medication adherence.
Designed to help Medicare patients and their families feel better prepared for the transition from hospital to home, CareBridge offers coaches who serve as a guide and work to ensure that all needs are met. This program consists of one home visit and a series of follow-up phone calls focused on: addressing post-discharge questions and concerns, understanding medications, and increasing awareness of “red flags” that point to a worsening condition. Our coaches help with preparing for follow-up appointments, creating a personal health record, and supporting patients in their personal health care goals.
The Pathways suite of programs was built to meet the needs of patients with chronic comorbid conditions and help them live with their conditions. The programs are currently focused on heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, and asthma.
Designed for patients with advanced illnesses, this program is centered on patient choice and focuses on ensuring that physical, mental, social, and spiritual needs are met. Through a compassionate, person-centric approach, our coaches deliver a set of evidence-based, standardized interventions to support patients and their caregivers during the end of life process.
